This testimonial is an example of how a dog can steal your heart. Albert wasn't planning to adopt a dog, and there she was... beautiful Cupcake waiting for him! Read his nice story:
"Well my story started about 3 years ago, I was just on FB kind of looking around and I noticed on WCHS page a story about a mixed breed dog named April that had puppies but she had a disease that kept her from feed her babies. She had 8 and they were all just adorable. The Humane Society was bottle feeding them all and had also named them all. I didn't want a dog at all but decided that I would look at the pictures just to be looking. Then there she was!! One little brindle and white baby girl who just captured my heart, her name was Cupcake and was so fitting a name. By the time we decided to go take a look she was 6 weeks old and just full of personality. I instantly fell in love and as well so did my wife and two sons. We discussed the options and decided we would foster for a while just to see how it worked out.
Well the day came that we had to take her back and it was the hardest thing I had ever done. I bawled like a bay when we got there couldn't even go in with her. My wife was crying but we had to do what was right. We had purchased toys and a bed and she loved them so we took them back with her. One week later we received a phone call that the adoption for Cupcake had fallen through and were asked if we were interested. Needless to say Cupcake is 3 now and weighs 80 lbs, she is a boxer/pit bull mix and the most loving dog any person could have, she now has a puppy of her own, Sophie a beagle/shepherd mix that is just a great dog and a loving sister. They have 5 (2 boys and 3 girls) cat siblings Yoda, Peebles, Bunny, Miranda and Peanut and though the don't get along all the time do live in harmony"–Albert, Winchester, Virginia
